Police Scanner App for WM in Development

In the last few years , we have seen requests for many types of apps on XDA. Among these, there seemed to be a large amount of requests regarding police apps (radar detectors, speedcam softwares, and many more). XDA member Martin25 has started to develop one on his own. Police Scanner will try to pick up police communications so that you can listen to what they are saying. It is in very early stages of development and the dev is encountering several road blocks. However, if you think you can help, you could lend a hand to a fellow dev to make this app a reality. There is an early beta provided by the dev, so give it a go.

im doing it in html and having problems making embedded wmp to do anything

Sony’s Emergence in The Middle: Is The Price Right?

Sony’s Electronics Division is not in its best days, and its smartphone products are seemingly an important cause of this. The Japanese giant’s Xperia line has been on the decline in terms of sales, and these past few months have been particularly damaging to the company due to the Xperia Z4’s market performance. Sony’s Q1 results were also not favorable, as its mobile division lost $184 million and sales slumped 16% year-on-year.   Not too long ago we featured a...

HTC Delivering Ads Straight to Sense Home

HTC's 2015 has been a year marked by a desperate search for revenue. The HTC One M9 launched with its own launcher complete with a Smart Folder in the Sense Home Widget. This automatic pseudo-folder would populate with "suggestions" that were nothing more than thinly-veiled ads.   Just over a month ago, HTC began placing advertisements (that can thankfully be disabled) in Blinkfeed. These Blinkfeed ads appeared after Yelp advertisements began appearing on HTC's Lock screen. Users, expectedly, voiced dissatisfaction all...
